Ogunjumelo Enters Race For Ondo South Senatorial District


A Lagos-based businessman and philanthropist, Chief Francis Adetuwo Ogunjumelo, has  entered the race to represent Ondo South Senatorial District in the National  Assembly.

Ogunjumelo, a trained accountant, who wants to vie for the senatorial seat on the  platform of the Labour Party (LP), said during his declaration on Sunday in Lagos,  that he is prepared to offer effective representation to the people of his  constituency if elected into office next year.

The aspirant said he was worried at the level of poverty in the society and promised  to work with the administration of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko in the state, to introduce  novel ideas that would reduce the suffering of the people, adding that his main  focus will be on road construction and rehabilitation.

Ogunjumelo also said he would set a standard for legislative representation in his  constituency by being a servant to the people and not their master, promising to  make himself available at all times instead of being elusive.

He said he would work with government to invest more in education through his Chief  Adetuwo Ogunjumelo Foundation, adding that the fate of the youths would be better  off if they were well equipped educationally to face future challenges.

According to him, the area he wants to represent at the National Assembly is purely  agrarian and during his tour of the 66 wards in the six local governments making the  senatorial district, he discovered that there is a lot of potential to explore which  he hopes to do in collaboration with the state government. He promised to open up  the villages by way of road construction and rehabilitation as well as make the  hitherto moribund Oluwa Glass Industry and Okitipupa Oil Palm Plc, both located  within his constituency, functional once again.

He said that the fortunes of Korede Microfinance Bank he established at Igbotako in  Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state would be strengthened with more  branches established in other parts of the constituency to boost socio-economic  activities the area.
